  1. This sounds good! Better than the traditional green bean casserole that has mushrooms (ick!).

    I’m going to the local veggie stand today. I might have to pick up some green beans!

  3. I was so glad to see you at the Bean Fest today, and to travel here to find your recipe. I love sesame oil…especially the toasted kind, with that unique flavor. Thanks for this inspiration.
